Does DP stand for "The Daily Paranoid"?

Wow... what happened around here?

When a top post calls for the public display of dead children to prove that they actually are dead, I know I have to move on.

I Hope that crowd continues to hate Rand Paul - and I hope he keeps his distance from them... we don't need the stigma they bring to the movement the next go-around.

I seriously don't want to be associated with this site - and I think it is a tragedy that a site (formerly?) dedicated to the philosophy of Dr. Paul has been essentially taken over by what I can only consider as the mentally ill.

It isn't that such stuff is posted that bothers me - but that such stuff draws such great support... I would expect our community to bury such stuff, but, instead it is accumulating the up votes! Either the sane ignore such posts, or we are outnumbered.

No. The "Daily Vigilant".

I do agree

I do agree most of the "Common people" won't take the posts here with much credibility, thus it is not a good representation, but...

Sooner or later people will

Sooner or later people will realize that only the ones with money are controlling the media and writing history. A good majority of our 'history' is one big twisted lie.

How can we not be 'paranoid' about everything from mainstream media?

all the while, Bill continues

all the while, Bill continues posting at the DP. He hates it so much he just can't pull himself away.

Open minded

Just maybe, many people that come here believe that the mainstream issues facing the nation are the most pressing, and anything that diverts from those immediate concerns, is perceived as a distraction, or a fringe element, possibily even a radical view..or worse.
Something to be condemned, marginalised and dismissed.

I see these so called 'conspiracy' issues more as 'fishing expeditions'
and it must be noted that just once in awhile, someone lands a big one, that those that would disagree, come to readily embrace as fact.
In the current era it started with 'Watergate' and it's just gotten more extreme ever since. Just maybe, if it wasn't for those that 'question everything', and accept nothing, no matter how insignificant it may appear, we might never be aware of what we now take as being fact..and when you look at it, is it any wonder some people take that stance.

Don't agree with everything you said,

but I feel ya.

I'm an anarchist, and I have been accused of "hating liberty" because I do not think the government planned 9/11.

It's very condescending, sometimes. All I want to do is have conversations about liberty and how we can advance it (while dismantling as much as the State as humanly possible), and if I mention that Alex Jones is just a sensationalist "journalist" who is often-times wrong, or that the Bilderbergers do not pull the strings behind the US election, I get attacked.

Animals that keep a look out at the watering hole are paranoid

too, but they keep others alive. Reasoned paranoia is a constructive means of survival.

Blind ignorance is much more dangerous.

GO AWAY!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Are you being held hostage, BIll? Do you need help?

"I seriously don't want to be associated with this site" and yet instead of clicking your mouse to go to another site, you were forced to post here? And once forced to stay on this site you were forced to read threads you do not like?
WOW! I feel very badly for you!

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:
http://bklim.newsvine.com/_news/2013/05/12/18212165-dr-stan-...

And you would tell Dr. Paul to just move?

Just checking to see if my perception that the site is now flooded with folks I don't wish to be associated with is real or imagined. People like you that, instead of making a genuine comment or staying out of the conversation, are compelled to interject your childish personal attacks... and the folks that cheer you on from the sidelines.

Truly, you guys are like a bunch of bullies at the playground. You act like you want open discussion, debate and freedom of expression - but you shut it all down with mob rule when anyone disagrees with you.

You are a member of a democratically empowered mob.

Um...Gillingham, I've seen your posts.

So when you say "People like you that, instead of making a genuine comment or staying out of the conversation, are compelled to interject your childish personal attacks", realize that statement actually describes YOU more than it does fishy, since it describes the majority of your comments I've ever seen you post on this site.

Provide links

Thanks

Bill, it's kinda your m.o. Others have even commented...

...about your condescending, insulting, ridiculing, sniping remarks.

There is such an abundance of your incessant collectivist posts where you use the term "truther" in an obviously demeaning way, I could prolly just post the link to the tracking of your comments and stop right there.

But since you asked... I'll start here with your thread where you pretend to be asking a serious question of whether truthers visit 9/11 debuking sites, but lace your OP with remarks that seek to marginalize.

I must say, Truther sites read like a bad (any) documentary from the Discovery Channel... I can hear Leonard Nemoy in the Background (accompanied by spooky 'In Search Of' music)

http://www.dailypaul.com/255905/do-truthers-ever-visit-9-11-...

...and then there was the childish "elf" remark on another thread...

Is there an elf angle to the whole theory I'm unaware of?

http://www.dailypaul.com/255824/9-11-doubts-seep-into-the-ma...

Do they make a RAID product... that works on truthers? The DP is infested with them.... real pests.
I wish you would take your masturbatory 'truths' elsewhere... you make us all look bad.

http://www.dailypaul.com/264877/i-was-wrong-wtc-7-not-demoli...

Truthers don't want debate I don't debate them any more... I just ridicule them for being fools.

http://www.dailypaul.com/264877/i-was-wrong-wtc-7-not-demoli...

Truthers have no interest in debate
Their arguments are so insane and illogical - I think they are actually government plants trying to make the freedom movement look bad... and it works. This site is absolutely infested with them.... look how they flock to 9/11 posts.
What can I say? They have simple minds.

http://www.dailypaul.com/264877/i-was-wrong-wtc-7-not-demoli...

Yeah - I trust the voters in this thread just like I trust the voters of the nation. bunch of sheep - "bahhahha, thermite bahaaaaa, thermite

http://www.dailypaul.com/255905/do-truthers-ever-visit-9-11-...

I'm tired of it. 'You guys' have latched onto the liberty movement...

[So people who question the establishment line on 9/11 aren't really part of the liberty movement and don't belong in it? Bill decides who's in and who gets the boot?]
http://www.dailypaul.com/255905/do-truthers-ever-visit-9-11-...

Truthers tend to use bully tactics

http://www.dailypaul.com/266118/what-do-truthers-really-thin...

Hahaha Well - I would expect such from a Truther. You always see what you want to see...

http://www.dailypaul.com/266118/what-do-truthers-really-thin...

hahahahahahahahahahaha Keeping the truthers looking sane! Hahahahahahaha!!!

http://www.dailypaul.com/264877/i-was-wrong-wtc-7-not-demoli...

I hope they have a plan to keep the nuts at bay

Ah - the instigator known as enemyofthestate1776...oh great provocateur.

[note- enemyofthestate1776 was not nasty and said nothing that warranted the "instigator" and "provocateur" labels in that thread. Numerous people, however, did comment on Bill's bad behavior in that thread.]

And of course things wouldn't be complete without the ~your mom's~ insults...

Get in your mom's car... and drive out there for yourself.
Why don't you keep this crap on your facebook page? Why stink up the whole DP with your shit?

Didn't you borrow your mom's car yet?

Bill, that is plenty to prove my statement to you above. It is quite ironic that you scold someone for what fits you like Cinderella's slipper.

Dont waste your time with a disinformation "specialist"

God knows Gillingham would have been top gun in the Soviet Union or 1933 Germany HAD THEY HAD the internet.

IGNORE disinformation agents.

They are to be expected...and laughed at.

Isn't it funny

That this is supposed to be a site with individualistic thinkers, yet you ask a question that is not among the status quo and you are told to leave? Everyone that does not agree with everything posted here is a sheep....or a troll.... or just stupid. Sounds peaceful and free thinking doesn't it?

Something for you to consider

Something for you to consider and keep in mind: Our interest in freedom and liberty is our common bond.

Ron Paul often says that "freedom brings people together," and he's right. Freedom brings people together from so many different backgrounds, interests, etc.

Not everyone here is the same. There are going to be plenty of differences of opinion.

The important thing, though, is that we always remember why we are here. That is where we need to continue our focus despite differences in other areas that we might not agree with.

what happened here?

why feed it?.

Are you paranoid?

Or are you paranoid *enough*?

Or, another more or less quote puts it:

"Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you."

Which I think is from Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon

Thomas Pynchon

and:

“If there is something comforting - religious, if you want - about paranoia, there is still also anti-paranoia, where nothing is connected to anything, a condition not many of us can bear for long.”
― Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

and a bunch of other quotes at:

I tend to dislike these kinds of posts

The kind of posts that complain about a perceived direction of Daily Paul. I say "perceived," because people tend to have a confirmation bias for things toward which they have a strong negative reaction. For example, you are afraid that Daily Paul is being "taken over" by a conspiracy egregore. I don't have that perception at all. For sure, there are always posts like that around, but are they a majority? Not to me.

Scrutiny

There is nothing wrong with a healthy bit of scrutiny. The desire to see the evidence for one's self is the right way to approach such things especially when allegations of a stage are considered. Knowing that most of our sources of information are owned by people with a specific agenda in order to arouse hysteria for the removal of more of our rights adds to the need for evidence. There is no sickness in the desire to dispel conjecture for truth; even if the truth is undesirable to behold.
